Sailing Nandji Ep 68 – Buy a 30ft Boat & Cross the Pacific for less than 13k
Sailing Nandji Ep 68: we interview the young German captain and his crew onboard the 30ft sailboat Fara. He bought a vessel for 5.5k and sailed across the Pacific ocean.
In this episode of Sailing Nandji, we decided to put the Captain and crew of Fara behind the lens and hear their very inspirational story. We first met these guys in Honiara over Christmas.
We then cruised through the Florida islands, Russel islands and into the Western PRovince of the Solomon Islands together. The German Captain Manual share his story of first purchasing Fara, the costs involved to get the vessel Blue water ready and then sail across an ocean with a Mexican lady Raquel.
She then tells her side of the story from not having any experience to now living on board Fara for 8 months. Then meet the French man who has joined the journey to finish off this epic adventure from mainland Mexico to South East Asia.
A beautiful story of culture and travel with all the challenges of living on a small boat in a big ocean. If you want to know how to sail on a tight budget, then these guys can tell you how!!
